Gromov Dominates WPT Vienna
Russian Dmitry Gromov went wire-to-wire at the final table to capture the WPT Vienna title Tuesday.
Although the €447,840 first-place prize marked his biggest career score, Gromov is no stranger to the winner's circle, having posted a first-place finish at the PokerStars Russian Poker Series Kiev Grand Final last December for $201,363 and at the 2010 Venetian Deep Stack Extravaganza III in Las Vegas last July for $316,759.
He now has well over $1 million in career live tournament earnings.
WPT Vienna drew 555 Players creating a €1,776,000 prizepool and breaking the record for entrants in a European WPT event set at WPT Amneville last November.
Although Gromov came into the final holding the chip lead, 24-year-old Italian Alessio Isaia's name was on the marquee, having booked a win at WPT Venice for €380,000 and finished runner-up on the Malta leg of the PokerStars Italian Poker Tour for €80,000 last month.
Isaia could do no better than seventh place as Gromov held the lead throughout and beat fellow Russian Maksim Kolosov heads-up in just five hands.
The World Poker Tour now moves on to Bratislava where the €2,500+€220 main event begins Wednesday at the Golden Vegas Casino. Less than an hour from Vienna, organizers are running a free shuttle to the casino.
Here's how the WPT Vienna final table finished up:
1 Dmitry Gromov €447,840
2 Maksim Kolosov € 241,180
3 Simon Ravnsbaek €169,690
4 Mario Adinolfi €115,420
5 Valentin Stroiescu €83,550
6 Maximillian Noll €65,460
7 Alessio Isaia €49,100
8 Mark Jenisch €36,180
